Chocolate Bark

I have seen tons of this stuff everywhere in various guises and needed to make some for myself.
Today was the day.
I had a couple of hours to myself - yes, ALL BY MYSELF - and I managed to get my sewing fix, next month's #pinaddicts challenge, and chocolate fix into that precious time.
So, back to the chocolate bark.
 
 
It is so simple to do and you can put almost anything in it.

Ready salted crisps and chocolate anyone?!



I gathered my goodies.

 
 
I made three different batches.
 
The first consisted of 100g dairy milk chocolate and 50g white chocolate.

Simply melt them separately - I did this slowly in a bowl over boiling water.

Once melted spread the milk chocolate over baking paper then spoon some white dollops on top.

With a skewer make swirly patterns.

Then decorate - I used M&Ms and mini eggs.

I then reversed the colours using 100g white chocolate and 50g dairy milk chocolate.



 
 
Next I really wanted to make a nutty bark but was clean out of peanuts, almonds, pistachios, you name a nut - I did not have it.
 
Instead I had a bag of ready salted crisps so I chucked some of them over some melted dairy milk.





All three barks were put in the fridge for about an hour to set.

Then just crack it and enjoy!



Oh, the crisps and chocolate? They actually work really well together.

Give it a go!

  2. In the same way that peanut butter and marmite should not go together, I applaud your combinations. Looks delicious. Good luck x
